To give up reading books for Lent. My friend, Cleve, described it as cruel and unusual. But on the other hand, what could be more sensible for me?
I've thought to use it as an opportunity to simply focus on scripture. I wanted to work through some OT material into the Gospels toward Easter.
I'd thought to read Leviticus, Deuteronomy, I&II Samuel, and Isaiah before heading into the Gospels. What do you think? Would these contextualize Christ and his Passion well enough for the 40 days? Maybe it's too ambitious a list.
Help me. Join me?
